The Brookings Innovation Center is a state-of-the-art facility featuring modern and innovative architecture that truly makes it a sight-to-see. We are connected to Interstate 29 and the Highway 14 bypass, allowing us to be easily accessible to those inside and outside of the community.
The most important part of the location is our proximity to South Dakota State University. This proximity to the University provides unique benefits for companies to access campus facilities and equipment. More importantly it allows for collaboration with the faculty and human capital by way of the graduate and undergraduate students.
The Innovation Center features convenient common areas to provide you with every necessity you might need and want.

As soon as you enter the Innovation Center you are welcomed by a magnificently designed rotunda featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that make for a spectacular view. It is a great first impression for companies recruiting new clients or meeting with existing clients. It also doubles as a great space to host receptions and gatherings.
Includes the “Wall of Fame” which showcases the companies in the Innovation Center and Research Park
The architecture isn’t the only thing that is modern in the Innovation Center, so are the first-class business and technological amenities.
